Lets see what we can dig up about you...

You're reading this in Ashburn which is located in the VA in United States and your country code is US

That isn't too exciting How about your longitude and latitude is -77.4728, 39.0481 Which should put you around:

All of that came from your IP address which is

I also get your user agent string of

CCBot/2.0 (http://commoncrawl.org/faq/)

You're most likely running Hmm, not sure, not one of the conventional ones, but that's not too surprising, I'm not too bright, but that is a guess. I could take a similiar guess and figure out your OS which would let me customise a possible attack vector on your machine, but I'm too nice for that

Moving on, you have a hostname of ec2-54-80-111-72.compute-1.amazonaws.com Which is probably quite meaningless to you, but your domain is amazonaws.com which, most likely is your ISP. Their information is:

Again, this is probably quite meaningless, but it does mean I now know who to contact. I have your IP and the time you connected, your ISP is obliged to keep logs, so they should be able to find you quite easily in their billing records

One of the more interesting things is this was all done with free tools and information freely provided by your computer when it makes a connection.

The next step is to start moving into the grey and black hat area - scanning your ports to find out what you have open, or trying some browser exploits to see if its possible to snag some additional information.

This took about 3hrs to code up, it only took about 30 minutes to get the base stuff working, the remainder of the time was mainly spent with small tweaks. Imagine what information could be gathered if some of the larger pay-access databases were used.

Alternatively you may be feeling smug because the information isn't correct? Well, as I said, it is the free tools and it was coded up in a very short space of time, not to mention this page is calculated on the fly, so doesn't store any information. Give me a large supply of chocolate and I'll see what I can do.

Just a thought to leave you with...
